How To Know If You Need Glasses


One common question people living in Northbrook, Illinois ask when it comes to their health is ‘How do I know if I need glasses?’  It may seem like a question with an obvious answer, but that’s not completely true.

Many times the main sign that a person from Northbrook, Illinois needs glasses is that they begin to have difficulties seeing clearly.  They may have troubles seeing far away or up close.  These are due to common eye conditions called myopia and hyperopia.  

There are other symptoms, though, and in smaller children and even some reluctant adults in Northbrook, Illinois, these symptoms are noticeable by others and can be a sign that the person needs glasses.  These signs include squinting, driving difficulties, problems reading or problems in school.

Other signs that you may need glasses include headaches, fatigue and excess blinking.  Vision may also become blurred at times and then clear up.

Sometimes it is not so obvious that you may need glasses.  You may be so focused on other things that you take your good vision for granted.  If suddenly you are avoiding doing things associated with your normal life in Northbrook, Illinois like reading or working on the computer you may want to stop and think about why.  It may just be that you are having problems seeing.

There are some vision problems, though, that do not require glasses.  Sometimes the symptoms mentioned above may be a sign of other eye problems and they can be treated without the need for glasses.

The only way to find out if you need glasses is to go see a good eye doctor practicing in Northbrook, Illinois.  He will run a series of tests to determine the cause of your eye trouble.

If it is decided that you do need glasses, then you will be fitted for them.  You will also likely be given the option of contact lenses, which are a nice alternative to glasses.  Contact lenses are basically invisible and nobody else in Northbrook, Illinois will know you are wearing corrective lenses unless you tell them.

Needing eye glasses is not the end of the world.  There are plenty of people living in Northbrook, Illinois who require vision correction.  More people require vision correction then those who have perfect vision.  So, if you do need glasses then you are not alone.

The simple answer to ‘How do I know if I need glasses’ is that if you are having problems seeing then you probably need glasses.  As mentioned, though, the only true way to know the answer to that question is to go get your eyes checked out.
